but before i say that i want to continue thanking the people who are very interested in the city of this city, the future of sports, the future of the waterfront and all the neighborhoods that we know that are continuing to want to have a great positive economic future for the city and also create jobs at the same time. supervisor david chiu is here and he and i have talked quite a few time bs this project and what it means to the city. i want to also thank supervisor john avalos and he being a very strong advocate and working together on local hire we have been able to set course and ordinance for city funded projects that i think have been leading the nation in getting local people hired. at the same time i also want to acknowledge supervisor jane kim whose district this arena is being planned for and hopefully constructed on. and take the quality time it takes for all the environmental aspects of this project to be put forth and i -- thank you supervisor. as you know i emphasized job creation in the city being so incredibly important for both the present and the future, and as our econ

in the city and county of san francisco that may not be able to graduate, and meet the graduation requirements that were established by the san francisco board of education. we, in san francisco, have seen tremendous economic growth coming out of the most severe recession since the great depression, and having served on regional bodies that include other jurisdictions, i can tell you that we are very lucky in san francisco, that we are lucky that we have the resources that we have had, and that we hopefully will continue to have. but, yetd yet, in a city as wealthy as san francisco we have a school district that is facing a crisis. we have about half of our students in this class of 2014 that may not be able to graduate and meet the requirements. san francisco has to do better than that. and even though money is not everything, the ability for us to commit resources as a city is really important. and what i understand of this item is that there is a discussion about whether or not to tie the funding that's underlying this item to the rainy day fund. and to the extent that happens, to the exten
state warriors fan. reck said about this project because i want to see the team in our city. i really hope you guys push this project forward, thanks. >> thank you. i see no other -- one more. after the other members of the public who have not spoken, please do line up against the wall. >> thank you, supervisors, tom king once more. i support the project but i do have concerns. the presentation was very well done. i didn't hear anything about the residents living close to proposal site. will there be a study to examine this impact? that said revenue alsoing increase as visiting team also stay in san francisco perhaps two to three nights, especially with east coast teams and travel days. also nba teams book entire floors of hotels for security reasons. pro sports teams are owned by billionaires, so please be cautious with the final contract. i think two people should be more involved in the decision. one is harvey rose, a superb budget analyst. the other is a san francisco resident named gund. he is very charitable. he and his family own the cleveland team. they would have detai
entitlement and taking the risk. oftentimes the city will be reimbursing private developers for that cost. so there is really shared risks in the entitlements. if the warriors are proposing zoning changes that will come before you, evident in term sheet and move forward through the planning department processes, the costs and risks associated with that would be borne by the warriors up front in the entitlement process. i hear you and i will take that. >> thank you, supervisor. also a clarification. you have the three reimbursable limited services, one, two and three. does the term sheet or does the conceptual framework anticipate we exhaust one before moving to the next, or it is interchangeable? >> it doesn't specifically create a waterfall. but this also sort of gets to the issue of the proposed return on the cost of capitol. it is the city's intention to negotiate to try to repay the warriors for their expenditure as quickly as possible, with as much up -- as large sort of chunks as possible. so the value is something that could come in early as a 30 million credit. the ability to bond aga
residents have a time to think and be engaged. i think this is being prioritized by the city but i would like to have that balance as much as we can. given the warrior's time line with lease expiration in oakland but also understanding a lot of hesitation and concerns i think our residents are asking. i do really want to commend the residents of our neighborhood for being incredibly incredible and respectable and reasonable. i think it's been outstanding. the level to which our residents have beening a gaouing to participate in the discussion versus outright saying we are against the project, we will not participate and oppose at all costs. i think that speaks to the level of respect and dedication people have both to their neighborhood but also to the city as a whole. so i think there are a lot of great things moving forward. i think the design is beautiful. there is a great architect in place. i think warriors have been great in initiating this outreach process with the neighborhood. you know, rick, i think you have been a great spokesperson for the warriors and i appreciate your abili

have a lot, before we get too deeply into a fixed program so we could ask the questions before the city spends a lot, or the warriors spend a lot of money on the eir and entitlement process. we appreciate the fact the scoping meeting has been moved to mid-january and the port approved moving the term sheets to later on. the issue is to give the cac the opportunity to address the actually issues not on a nimby and cheerleader basis but on the fact of the deal. we will appreciate your help getting there, thank you. >> thank you. may call a few more names. ramon hernandez, rosenthal, rhene, tony. >> i'm ron miguel i'm a member of the piers 30, 32 cac. i agree and disagree with our chair, katy, who has by the way been doing a very excellent job under sometimes exasperating circumstances. the cac has been nothing other than a public information office up to this point. i have talked to katy and others. i think there is pretty much agreement we should start operating as the cac, particularly by january. i firmly believe we will. to get to the fiscal feasibility study perhaps because of my bac
and others who work on finance in the city. i think jennifer has talked a lot about the project financing that we will address through the pro forma analysis and discuss what the city is obliged to repay and community benefits. how specifically is city through the term sheet with warriors establishing a way to pay for police, neighborhood cleanup and additional transit service. those have to be answered in the term sheet. after the term sheet is approved, it would be endorsed by the port commission and board of supervisors. it is non-binding, reflects intention of parties headed into environmental review. during the period of environmental review city staff would negotiate a more detailed set of transaction documents governing the sale of seawall lot 30 and long-term lease of piers 3032 and those would be subject to both port commission approval and board of supervisors approval. that is expected in early 2014. so quite a -- >> before you go forward supervisor kim has a question. >> seems like actually maybe your next slide was going into a schedule. i'm looking at the memo and says term

. but i agree, endorse what you said at the beginning, which was this is a tremendous asset to the city and we're very appreciative of the opportunity to develop it. >> thank you. >> thank you. why don't we go to the budget analyst report. >> madam chair and supervisor avalos, we have our conclusions shown on page 18 of our report. and we state that based on the term sheet provisions, the budget and legislative analyst estimates that the port would receive revenues over the 66-year term future ground lease or an estimated value of $15.7 million. we also report that the estimated net present value of rent revenues in the port would be less than 15.7 million if project costs are higher or tenant rents are lower than estimated in the preliminary pro forma financial analysis. orton is currently conducting a detailed evaluation of the 20th street historic building site and developing a more refined sign plan and cost estimate of the project. the proposed term sheet requires orton to submit a complete underwriting package with detailed estimates of the total project cost, financing costs and
francisco's style and how we are as a city. and it's something that's very troubling to me to see that. we're a city that actually had -- the publication of city life that naked lunch came out there was a ban about that. the city looks at free speech and expression, we're a beacon of light to other places around the country and sometimes there's weirdness about how we express ourselves but i think that is what is great about san francisco. i have something teed up that i was saving for before, for chris daly when he used the f word in the board chambers but i think this is more appropriate. catch-22. and think it expresses some of the absurdity of this that we have in the backdrop of world war ii where people are killing each other, the inconsequential nudity that is before the general is sh something that is quite meaningless over all. >> why aren't you wearing clothes, captain? >> don't wanna. >> what do you mean you don't want to. why don't you want to? >> i don't know. i just don't wanna. >> why isn't he wearing clothes? >> he's talking to you. >> why isn't he wearing clothes, major? w

it has always been the city's policy not to allow alcohol in a public playground. these kids have not shelter from the weather, or restroom facilities. a much more sensitive use to the environment and community would be to use the degaussing station as a clubhouse for the kids so they have shelter, restroom facilities, and a place to store their equipment. if rec and park doesn't want to pay for it, even though they just received about $200 million, i would be willing to fund it myself as a contribution to the city. i'm looking for six votes here. who want to put the environment and the welfare of the children ahead of the dollars of a restaurant lease. do the right thing. and vote against this restaurant lease on december 4. and with all due respect, supervisor farrell, i ask you again, with the association, with the hospitality industry, and$á( mz your own father pitchg this restaurant, do the decent and honorable thing and recuse yourself from this vote. thank you. >> president chiu: i want to remind the public there's a rule in the board chamber that we not address individual
the warriors in the city will bring those types of similar opportunities to students and kids and families that i was able to have and make it more important to have internships with the teams and move their careers along. i think the warriors should be in san francisco as well. i think the opportunity is there for students will be more visible and easily achieved if the warriors are here in san francisco, thank you. >> thank you. >>> madam chair, members of the committee, my name sal lex rosenthal. i'm here with the california music and culture association. as i believe you know, cmac is california's only trade association representing that life interest. we are industry representatives, nightclub owner, artists, fans dedicated to enrichment and preservation of music and culture in california. a 6,000 to 17,000 seat venue will certainly fill a critical void. cmac is hoping this will augment the burgeoning night life and restaurant scene with an influx of new visitors. we also look forward to working with the warriors to make sure their venue is self managed and local talent and promoters
without destroying our beautiful city sky -- or waterfront. i7j÷ think it's rather just astonishing that when we speak to our neighbors, that no one knows of this. although rec and park said that they did a lot of prepublicity, i mean these are neighbors. these are concerned individuals that are affected directly affected. are at the 11th board, when it comes to vote december 4, that youkírá@ alloa continuance, allow our affected -- to give us more time. >> president chiu: thank you very much. thank you. next speaker. >> hello. my name is -- campo, i'm also living at marina boulevard. this is regarding changing degaussing station at marina green to the fish and chip restaurant and to me just like putting a hot dog stand at half storm in yosemite. it destroyed the nature. i've been walking by this place, by degaus station, for 21 years. like a gal pus island. all the bears, migratory bears, sitting on a roof. and it's such a magnificent waterfront. and changing this waterfront to the commercial restaurant is not right. besides, hundreds of kids, they play soccer on saturday, and t
it is technically illegal to be naked in city center plaza which is a park. in addition this legislation has no application at all to beaches, or of course to private property. the castro and san francisco in general is a place of freedom, expression and acceptance. but freedom expression and acceptance doesn't mean anything goes under any circumstance, itw doesn't mean that we have no standards whatsoever of behavior. freedom, expression and acceptance don't mean that people can do whatever pops into their heads, no matter what the impacts on others or on the neighborhood. as a result, i introduce legislation to extend a narrower version of our existing nudity plazas, parklets and public transportation. to acknowledge that our public spaces are for everyone, and that, as a result, it's appropriate to have some minimal standards of behavior so that everyone can enjoy these spaces. this legislation and the issue generally has generated significant and intense debate community, and in the city as a whole. i don't pretend that there's unanimity around this legislation. there are strong views, l
are a local government entity, and we deal with the day-to-day challenges of a city, and of neighborhoods. and some of those are monumental and some of thosegqjatç are very mundane. and as a district supervisor, you can only imagine if i, or any of us were saying i'm having trouble getting this pothole filled in front of my house, can you please help me. and if you responded and said well let's see, if i have to fix muni and get all the help for all the mentally ill people in our city and close the achievement gap and help all the small businesses that are struggling in this city, do all of those things, and then when i'm done, i'll get to your pothole to be filled. i have a feeling your constituent probably wouldn't respond very positively to that. the fact is that we deal with a whole gamut of issues at this board,>(( úñ large to small, and the large are not to the exclusion of the small. the fact is that this is a real issue. and i think, colleagues, you'll know that you can love or hate the legislation i proposed, but i work on a lot of different issues, large and small,k$%($$ao al

, until the cac holds meeting. so i just wanted to clarify from the city attorney's point of view, i know this is a resolution and so in many ways it's not necessarily a binding piece of legislation so technically the board could still act. however it does signal an intent so i wanted to ask office of economic and workforce development, in terms of the cac actually being able to schedule a meeting who actually controls making sure that we actually have timely meetings that are set up to review these items? i think it's important that the cac look at these items but if we were to have individuals who maybe didn't want to see it move forward if they chose not to have meetings would that then put the board in a bad situation where we would have passed a piece of legislation and said we will not take action until they hear it but no meetings have been scheduled. can you explain that for me. >> president chiu: ms. matz. >> thank you through the chair, jennifer matz from the office of economic and workforce development. just in the last week we've been better trying to organize our outreach to

. eric brooks representing san francisco green party and local grass-roots organization "our city". so i wanted on the last note the green fest is november 10, and 11. some of the advocates will be there putting out community choice material and i think you guys had plans to be there. i'm not sure. and just wanted to kind of back up what ms. hale was saying it will take -- that november 30 we will have some of the stuff crunched that has come in from local power and other consultants but there is still a long way to go to learn about -- especially the possibility of offering customers and even to your point commissioner olague even low income customers to buy into shares of the program or to get energy efficiency installed in tandem for signing up with the program so there are reasons to reach out even to the communities we're not planning to enroll in the first phase and that is really important. the last point that i would raise just to make sure it's on everybody's radar screen, and i ask all the commissioners to hear this one because it's something i haven't brought up before, and
built in the city and debate what are we building for and we come up with our own projection debate by debate but this dashboard will be helpful in really giving us pinpoints as to where the city isaqj)e at in complying with our 2009 housing element. so i just want to thank supervisor olague for her work. this is something she has taken on since she was commissioner. i also want to recognize supervisor campos. we had called for a hearing on this very issue earlier this year and one of the recommendations that came out of this hearing was of course a dashboard to better understanding housing production needs at various income levels and to understand the source of funds available for affordable housing at the federal state and local level so we can begin to have a discussion about solutions on how to close this production gap. c, this dashboard will assist in helping us to prioritize funds that we just passed at the ballot and i want to appreciate our voters for passing both prop c andms( e. they will be incredibly important in serving as a source of funding for affordable housing in
